Kimono me

Hedvig Opshaug August 2014-2

It’s been a while, but I firmly believe the world is still standing!
As you may know the semi annual fashion month tour is fully on, and so far I’ve been pretty much living in suitcases, spending more time in taxis between appointments and shows than in front of my laptop. The good thing though is that amongst my heavily packed suitcases there is space for inspiration that I’m storing on the go, and hopefully after having time to digest it all, we’ll have something to snack about in the darker months sets in.

Sartorial-wise I’ve sported  the dress+sneakers look a lot lately, either kimono dresses or little lace numbers. This has certainly been the year of sneakers and pointy flats, and from what I’ve seen so far it won’t be over very soon either.
Happy Tuesday  Everyone!

August have been a busy one, while it seems that most people have escaped cities for airy beach life I certainly have been on the run or in a flight. Jeans, blouse and sandal combo’s have become my simple choice of outfits, especially when you’re juggling early nursery drop offs and meetings.
Well, soon they are off again, the clothing I mean, I’ve saved the best of summer to the last, a very much longed for holiday ahead, beach life ahoy, see you in Mykonos!

Bossy me, probably loosing patience on my non-professional photographer friend around who just kindly offered to help (so sorry dear, please forgive me!).

If there’s a pattern I’ll never tire of it’s got to be plaids, something the piles of classical checked shirts and scarves in my wardrobe clearly proves. This fall season, like so many before, plaids are back, not that they ever left, last year was full on plaid-mania.

Anyway, I recently teamed up with the iconic brand Belstaff, well known for their waxed leather bikers and recent collaborations with David Beckham. However this brand has certainly more than bikers up their sleeves, and this wrap skirt for instance might end up being one of my favourite staples, teamed up with an oversized turtleneck knit and sneakers come fall.

Summertime Sadness

Hedvig Opshaug 23.08.2014-2

We’re getting there slowly, that time of summer when it gradually changes, you feel it in the air, the flowers are not strutting as much as they did a month back, friends and family gatherings are calling for reality, and in London yellow leaves already started falling. One month too early in my opinion but luckily there’s still a few more exciting escapes on my agenda before it’s time to roll up those sleeves. For those of you who’s got no more trips left, bless, and may August still be fabulous!

Meanwhile, the little clothes I’ve been wearing lately when I haven’t enjoyed beach life can be summed up by these loose jeans and blingy sandals. MiH jeans (also here and here), top by Celine, sandals by Marni (also here), watch by Larsson & Jennings, Ray Ban’s.

Diamonds & Signatures

August, I’m not sure what happened, but I guess losing track on time is a good sign when you’re holidaying, and that explains my absence here lately, amongst technical problems that resulted in several Mac-attacks for a while.

Well, I’m kicking off my August (and may it never end!) with my love for diamonds and personalised jewellery. As you may have noticed I’m a true fan of subtle pieces, and practically wear them every day, some which I never take off, same goes for my little girl. Though I’m a minimalist at heart my weakness are diamond pieces, and if I ever get close to over-accessorise I blame my love on them sparkling little things that I love combining with other special engraved pieces, #MYLOVE for those who might have noticed already.
Check out my latest collaboration with Monica Vinader here where I’m lined up with North-East-West and Central London girls.

Though I know many of you out there are addicted to the sweat, pain, and released endorphines that goes hand in hand with organised training, being honest, I’m certainly not one of them. However, we do what we gotta do, and number one thing to get me motivated to kick off a training session is fabulous sportswear, being honest again, it does count a whole lot if you’re as undedicated like me.

When I recently teamed up with Net-a-Porter’s newly launched lifestyle category Net-a-Sporter, who’s got an amazing selection of everything from gym wear to loungewear brands, I chose the most natural location, my childhood playground in the north of Norway. Except for feeling strong, beeing physical in wild nature has always given me a feeling of weightlessness and is fantastic for clearing your mind. Highly recommended you lovely ones, in style, lets get started shall we?

Happy mid July from sunny summery London!
Holiday season is just around the corner and right now I personally can’t wait for a city break and spend weightless days on the seaside. As part of my new mantra I’m opting to pack as light as possible, optimistically bringing along only one knitwear as a throw-on on cooler evenings, wish me luck!

Cropped days

I love a pair of cropped trousers, in fact I’m not an owner of anything that falls below my mid leg anymore, wide cropped, slim cropped, jeans cropped, and add cropped tops along with it throughout the summer. However, the trend barometer might say longer leg lengths come fall 2014, but lets wait shall we.
Hoping the sun is shining on you too!

It’s summer in the city, the tan and freckles are back on, and I’m fully enjoying by letting my skin breathe to the max, the behold and wellbeing of summer months.

Sartorial-wise I’ve been living in this jumpsuit, perfect on the daily run with sandals and easy to dress up with heels and a blazer, another all-rounder, yup, life doesn’t need to be so complicated, who’s got time for it?

When in Olso last week while being blessed by fantastic summery weather a trip to Aker Brygge and Tjuvholmen felt elementary. Enjoying fresh seafood, wine and ice-cream in the capital’s harbour is highly recommended while touristing on a warm summer day, watching the slow chilled speed of people and boat traffics, add that to your destination list if you need an escape from tumultuous city life.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Sorry for the absence this week, but I’m having a week off in Norway at the moment, enjoying everything from beautiful summer in the south to 5 degrees cold in the north.

Anyway, on my sartorial mind lately are all shades of whites and neutrals (apparently), basics as usual. This linen shirt for instance, is another wardrobe essential, Elin Kling, you hit the nail on the head with this collection.
Happy weekend everyone!!!

You’ve got to love a dress that works just as well sliding along the poolside as a coverup, chic enough for hot city life and smart enough for summer parties, and on top of that got pockets too (my soft spot!). Well, I just found the one, and from now on I know what style I’ll be adding more of to my wardrobe in the future, airy and sleek all rounders like this, that are perfect to bring along on holidays.

June already, what happened to May exactly? I don’t know about you but that month just passed so quickly I never got my head around it, the missing month this year. Anyway, May or not, this week I rediscovered my love for leather trousers and a crispy blue shirt again, not revolutionary in any way, just perfectly cut pieces.
Happy Weekend to every single one of you!

Being an “investment-dresser” and a black cat at heart like me, means you end up with a wardrobe mainly consisting of black, timeless separates. Boring you may say, but the positive side is that it sort of all work together without putting much thought to it, and I guess that’s the case for all different styles out there. Knowing what’s to your liking, save and invest in it!
Unless wardrobe space is none of your worries, then one perfect fitted black blazer or leather jacket worn over several seasons or years is better than having 5 collecting dust on their hangars.

With summer on hold right now and London offering more heavy showers that actual daylight, what to do?
Double Denim, a simple everyday combo I never seem to tire of and that somehow always feel current. It’s all down to great denim staples and otherwise classic shirts and accessories, no rocket science really, and we all the ingredients!
